Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the plasma gun room mentioned in Secret #5, press on the right wall to trigger a lift. Ride it up, then ride the next lift up to reach a caged area with a megasphere and an energy cell pack. (sector 10)
  2. At the start, head west and take the lift up to the blue-floored room. Head all the way west again, taking the south path a bit but look north to find a ledge to climb. Here, press on the wall with vents on it to find partial invisibility and ammo. (sector 60)
  3. At the start, head northeast and go up the small set of steps, then go south to another hallway. Take the spiral staircase down to a switch. Flip the switch and quickly head into the center of the room to be on a rising pillar (if you miss the rising pillar, you will miss this secret entirely). At the top, jump to the alcove with the chaingunner on it and use the wall at the end to find a Hell knight guarding a megaarmor. (sector 157)
  4. At the start, head northeast and press on the wall that is gray in color to find a switch. Use this switch, then quickly run east up the steps, then turn west and grab the soul sphere. (sector 225)
  5. In the waterways past the red door, go all the way to the west door and open the wall with the electricity symbol next to the door. Open the next wall and jump across. Keep going across this passage to reach a trap room with a few supplies, including a plasma gun in an adjacent room. (sector 294)
